Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour - A Journey of Enlightenment of

Lord Buddha
Buddhism began with the life of Lord Siddhartha Gautama a prince from the Kingdom
Shakya situated in the foothills of the Himalayas in the beautiful Nepal. Brought up in luxury,
the prince deserted his home and walked out as a religious beggar, in search for the
meaning of existence. The famous stories presuppose the Jain tradition, as Prince Gautama
was for a time a master of intense austerity, at one point almost undernourished himself to
death. He then decided, however, that self-torture debilitate his mind while failing to
advance him for enlightenment and therefore he turned to renunciation and concentrated
on different meditation techniques. In the end, under a holy tree in the forests of Gaya
spotted in state Bihar which is a part of Buddhist Pilgrimage tour packages he finally
resolved to stir on no farther until he have solved all the mysteries of existence. Breaking all
the barriers, he at last achieved the knowledge and he later expressed them as Four Noble
Truths, Refuge in Three Jewels, the Noble Eightfold Path, the Five Precepts and Three Marks
of Conditioned Existence. Gautama was now turned as Buddha and he spent his remaining
life travelling to northeast India and converting huge numbers of disciples. Buddha
achieved the final parinirvana at the age of eighty.
